High and Low Orbit???? What!!!!

Question

Hi, well trying to get some science done, and am asked to do high and low orbit stuff over the Mun, well delving and delving, i did find that the low orbit was 14,000m or less, but i cant find the high orbit.

while orbiting the mun, i increased the orbit height bit by bit and ended up a little over 2million km, but still no science given, so what the hell is "high" orbit...

and er...yes...have looked at wiki and many many articles...but nop answer.

anyone in the knowledge please.

thanks

sam

Scroll down. High over the Mun is 60km. Anything under that is low. If you're trying to follow a contract you have to do so exactly; it will give you an orbital height you have to stay in, and when you are there that line in your contract will have a green checkmark.

It should be anything over low orbit inside the sphere of influence. The thermometer won't provide data from high orbit but you should be able to get readings from all the other non-surface/atmosphere instruments.
